The Health Blogger Who "Healed Her Cancer" With Whole Foods Admits It Was All A Lie

April 22, 2015 1 min read

If you weren't aware of her already, Belle Gibson is a popular wellness blogger who built a career on claims she overcame terminal brain cancer with a whole food diet. After much speculation, the blogger has admitted she not only lied about her healing but about her illness. The 23-year-old grew an online following of millions after her cancer beating claims. She also released a recipe book in Australia called The Whole Pantry and a mobile app of the same name that recommended her recipes and diet tips. The app was downloaded over 300,000 times and her book scheduled to be published in the US and UK next month. Suspicions surrounding Gibson’s health first turned up in March when she claimed she had been wrongly diagnosed with various illnesses. Gibson said that despite her wrong diagnosis, she still had terminal brain cancer. In the same month, it was also revealed that claims she had raised thousands of dollars in charity donations through her book sales were false. Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 12.24.39 PM In an interview with the Australian Women’s Weekly, Gibson said: “None of it’s true. I don’t want forgiveness. I just think [speaking out] was the responsible thing to do. Above anything, I would like people to say, ‘Okay, she’s human.’” Following the backlash, Gibson deleted a multiple social media accounts and blog posts about her cancer claims. Her recipe book has been withdrawn and Apple has removed her app from its online store.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
